PosiBrace is a bracing system that incorporates PosiStrut metal webs and timber studs to form a braced panel. PosiBrace panels are suitable for most timber framed houses, multi-residential developments or commercial buildings - particularly where large wall openings preclude the use of large bracing panels. PosiBrace panels may be prefabricated as standard units that can be placed in prefabricated wall frames. This eliminates the expensive and time-consuming nailing required for the fixing of plywood braced panels. PosiBrace panels are also an economical alternative to plywood braced panels where design does not allow conventional cross-bracing to be used.
